Critters abound this time of year. A slight change in temperatures form the 100’s + days to some mid to upper 80’s must have critters thinking fall. Seems strange to not see squirrels scampering around the trees but I suspect the traffic has thinned the population.
Warblers are back visiting the little patio. They like to play hide and seek with my camera : /
A dragonfly was posing on a branch during a recent duck pond visit.
Here is a cute little human critter feeding the ducks. Just loved how happy this little child was to be close to the ducks.
One more baby duck picture.

On a late August afternoon Middle Grandson requested a fishing trip to The Duck Pond. It is in the high 90’s, possibly above 100 degrees in Central Texas. Pond temperatures are warm and the fishes settle toward the bottom at this time of day. Pointing this fact did not deter the ‘need’ to fish. With MG and his BFF we set off for the nearby Duck Pond, a favorite fishing hole for young kids.
Here are a few of the photos I shot while the guys did their thing. Thank goodness there were benches in the shade!
Is this what is known as tailgating….?
These ducklings make me smile.
A few turtles had taken over the dock house.
Red-Eared sliders and one lost slider.
Sweet little ducklings
Our little ducklings…..
One little sparrow.
